Xiaomi, the Chinese smartphone manufacturer introduced budget flagship smartphone - Poco F1 in India last year in August. To keep the momentum going, the phone maker is reportedly planning to launch the lower spec version of its flagship device. Likely to be called as Poco F1 Lite, the unreleased handset has been listed on Geekbench revealing most of its specifications ahead of the launch. To recall, Xiaomi rolled out Poco F1 with top of the line specifications at an affordable price. This new handset will be the second offering from Xiaomi under its sub-brand - Poco.

As the listing on Geekbench reveals majority of the specifications, however, there is not much information about the Poco F1 Lite's physical appearance. According to the report from iGyaan, it is believed that the phone will carry similar design as that of Poco F1, however, we can expect some minimal aesthetic changes. The listing on Geekbench clearly specifies that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 660 chipset, which we have already seen on the new Redmi Note 7. Moreover, the octa-core processor will be mated with Adreno 512 GPU. The new Poco F1 Lite reportedly will be packed with 4GB of RAM, however, we can expect a higher RAM variant from Xiaomi.
It is important to note that another phone from Xiaomi has also been listed on Geekbench, which is codenamed as Xiaomi Uranus. Interestingly, it sports similar specs as that of Xiaomi Poco F1 Lite. It is speculated that both the devices are the same, and will be released in different markets with different name globally.
Coming to the price point, there are no details available as of now. But, it is believed that the Chinese smartphone maker will be looking to keep the prices very competitive. We speculate the new Xiaomi Poco F1 device to be priced under Rs 10,000 in India. Moreover, there is no information about the availability as well. But, the Geekbench listing hints that the launch of Poco F1 Lite is around the corner.
